Does 240 Wins make a Hall of Fame Career?
Probably not, but there should be little doubt that Pettitte carved himself a nice career and is retiring with some fairly nice statistics. His 240 wins is paired with only 138 losses leaving him a .638 win percentage, which is 9th overall in Major League History. Pettitte also retires as the games's all time win leader in the Post Season, of which he netted five World Series Rings. The three time All Star, also whiffed 2,251 career batters.
With that said, detractors have reasons to sneer. Playing for powerful Yankees teams aided his win total, and though the way he handled sterois allegations should be printed in a textbook, he was still linked to it; and we have seen how the Hall treats the PED players. We here at Notinhalloffame.com figure that Pettitte won't get in, but does deserve an eventual top 100 rank. Oh....that reminds us.....check back in a few weeks when we unveil the 2011 Baseball list. Major changes are ahead.
What do you think of Andy Pettitte's HOF chances?
